Issue #79


Yesterday we harvested the first self-grown strawberries in our garden. Yipieeh!

We had only about ten red ones and those were divided carefully between the three of us.

The hardest part was to keep my 2-year old from picking the green berries. He had each and every strawberry in his little hands and asked for every one: "Mom, is this red?"

We also harvested 6 or 7 raspberries :-)

But the recipe of today was done with self-bought strawberries. I usually buy two pounds and they're gone in a blink of an eye. Yesterday I hid them from my family and then surprised them with the chilled soup after dinner.

Chilled Strawberry Soup


  • 1 1/2 pounds (1200g) fresh or frozen strawberries
  • 1/4 cup (75 g) vanilla yogurt
  • 1 pint (500 g) cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla


Blend strawberries in blender until smooth. Slowly add vanilla yogurt and keep blending.

Pour strawberry mixture into large bowl. Add cream and vanilla and stir until blended.

Chill in fridge for at least 1 hour.

Before serving garnish with a fresh strawberry or a mint leave. Serve in soup bowls.


Serves: 3

I'm a dessert fan and love all kinds of chocolate. Indulging into a brownie with icecream, treating myself with chocolate covered strawberries or a delicious cake is just something I don't want to miss.

But these goodies have a price: usually they settle around the waistline and don't ever go away.

This is why I got all excited when I found the "Dessert Angel Ebook" with 78 healthy, fat-burning dessert recipes.

You won't believe it, but most of them include chocolate and yet they're still a healthy dessert. Off course it would be better not to eat any sweets, but, hey, I wouldn't be able to do it.

I already tried the brownie recipe and my family didn't even notice the difference to a normal brownie.

If you have a sweet tooth and need to get rid of a few pounds, you definitely should check out the Dessert Angel's Recipe Book.

I can guarantee you'll love those recipes, too.

By the way, I had to replace my red currant plants with new ones, because there was no way to cure the fungal infection without very poisonous pesticides. One more reason to always buy certified plants form a trusted resource.

Have a nice day!
